Worth a lick?

Posted by Karen Herrmann on February 02, 2001

As stated in Tricia Yearwood's song - "he ain't worth a lick" I'm assuming it is related to "worth a lick of salt" but can't find anything in the major Quotation books or online about either phrase. Can anyone tell me the meaning and origin?
